♫ Random Monday 4-12-10

Let it begin, let it begin!.

Have you ever seen Bolt? Brandon bought it for my girls last year and we've watched it so many times I've got every one of those cute little hamster lines memorized. On to the randomness...

*Do we run our life, or does it run us?

*It occurred to me this weekend that I'm in a relationship with amazing communication. It's one of those things that you don't appreciate, until you need it. #2 on the list of Why We Rock, is our ability to compromise. Coming from two of the most hard headed people on the planet, that's sort of a big deal.

*It's funny the order that your brain recognizes things. Example:
-Oh hey there's a convertible. Weird that there is a black sheet behind it.
-Oh HEY, a REAL fan!

*I'm not sure that I'll ever get chikin'd out. spelling error intentional

*My girls continue to amaze me. Kyanne went from playful to completely observant overnight. That whole "Children are like wet cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression." thing? Officially applies to four year old's. Probably all year old's, but especially them. Leyna is the most insightful three year old I've ever met. The other day she told me "Mamma, because I live with you, I'm going to be like you." ... That, and "I'm so proud of you for spending money on me, mamma!"

*My friend Amberlee is in the process of making the CUTEST BABY EVER, next to mine, of course. And it's her birthday tomorrow. Happy Birthday Beautiful MAMMA!

*I'm going to try and get better at old fashioned mail. Check your mailboxes soon. It's a goal, for 2010. The internet has officially made our friendship efforts lazy. or at least mine. I'm sorry!

*I managed to light a stove on fire this weekend. For the first time ever. And my brain went in to immediate panic-mode. The dog hid, Leyna got really excited and my brain went from:

-PANIC!, because there is a 3 foot flame and a kid in the same room!


-Step 1: Turn Stove Off. Step 2: Don't use water just in case. Step 3: Remove pot. Step 4: Blow on it. Step 5: Pat yourself on the back for a short-lived panic.

*I love when businesses get on Facebook AND do it right. Two examples of awesome businesses that are doing it right that I've interacted with this week:

Tokyo Joes and Eat This Not That.

Keyword: interacted. When you post on their wall, a real live person actually responds. Plus, every post they make is actually valuable as a consumer. It's my job, people, bare with my Facebook rants. Dad? Maybe this Thursday? ;)

*I think there are three kinds of people: People that love change, people that hate change, and people that are not good at change but pretend to be.

*I'm naturally horrible before 10am. Every morning.

Picture time!

Things to notice about this old family picture:
-I had BLOND hair.
-My sister had LONG hair. And baggy clothes.
-My brother actually fit on our laps.
-My dad could actually sport the mustache. At least until Super Troopers came out and ruined that look for every single cop out there.
-My mom is buff.

Quote: Love is...

"Love does not envy or boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails"

I heard this at a wedding this weekend, and the pastor (Who made me almost giggle uncontrollably due to his Princess Bride voice), made the whole audience put their own name where Love goes. And it's amazing how much that quote changes, and makes you self reflect. Try it!

Nomz does not envy or boat. Nomz is not proud. Nomz is not rude, self seeking, or easily angered. Nomz keeps no record of wrongs. Nomz does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth. Nomz always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Nomz never fails.

How can you expect somebody else, or your love, to do ANY of those things, if you can't seek them in yourself first?

Yours Truly,

I have never, EVER before thought of that quote in the way I just did; WOW. Thanks for turning it on its head for me & making it brand new!

Also? I think we need to send some gum-spiration to the VW people, because we need our picture NOW.
